Does anyone have any interesting pieces they might just make for atmospheric purposes, or scenarios or anything?

For example, I find painting livestock amusing, so I have a little collection. I'll put them in a pen near a house, or out in a fenced in field in the middle of a battle just for something different and amusing.  For skirmish gaming sometimes I'll have civilians for raiders to capture or take hostage, or similarly just have them hanging around sometimes near the edge of the battle, watching all the important people have at it. :)

I've always wanted to make some baggage camp pieces but have never gotten around to it. I have some mishmash pieces that I can use to suggest it (carts and what not) but one of these days I'll do a proper little army camp marker.

I'd love to see what others have done!

Some livestock:











A shepherd:



One of Lumpin Croop's crew on swinerherd duty



Civilians, farmers, and a prisoner - makes a nice objective:



Burgomeister / Paymaster / Merchant type



Tribal folk with dogs



Baggage and stuff:









And some fancy objective/treasure marker for more scenario driven/RPG/Mordheim games:




What else is out there? :)

Very nice townsfolk and objective pieces. I always want to do some like that but never get around to it. Plenty of bits...

I agree, I love that coach!


Below is what I could find of mine that's already online:


Townies, Strumpets and a few of my Casualties (hey, they're "non-combatant"):

Vital supplies - an army marches on its stomach (beer belly in this case!)




And from my Witch Hunter regiment...




I want to do more of this sort of thing, but it is all time and effort away from painting "proper" fighting guys!

Oooh, sweet! I would love to use that stage couch-guy on a steam tank, or a war altar.

Ask yourself , what is real? 5 sense filtered reality is a very limited perspective.

Oh that's nice!

Here's a little thing I just put together... a little side project - a coal bunker!



Obviously a steam tank has to run on something, and I found this excellent Warhammer scale coal so I knocked this up.
